Hit N Run Phase 3 and 4. Prince completed ?

Prince old twitter account @prnlegacy have four images at the top of profile.

The two first are HitnRun One and Two..the other 2 is probably Phase 3,4

Did he complete at least the Phase 3 ? If I Could Get Your Attention with vocoder was the first single ?

anybody knows?

If they were completed it would be nice to have those as a double album (3&4 combined)

Prince mentioned 'Free Urself' and 'Ruff Enuff' sequenced together on a new album on a tweet, which I believe was later deleted. I don't recall whether or not Prince stated this as Phase 3 or not, but it was definitely speculated on.

Both 'If Eye Could Get Ure Attention' and 'Free Urself' were exclusive singles on Tidal and have a similar sound, so it would certainly make sense that they were originally intended for a planned project.

Judging from Prince's tweet, there may be a solo version of 'Ruff Enuff' also.

Very interesting. And Natalya is maybe on the album too? Maybe that’s what she and Prince were working on and talking about so much on the phone before he passed.

No, they're not probably anything of the sort. There's a whole series of photos by Martin Homent. Those are clearly Lovesexy and Purple Rain era pics from his series, whereas the 1 & 2 were more current for those albums. It's not hard to figure that much out, really.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Whilst I’m loving the estate releases, the reluctance to release a contemporary project is very frustrating. If it comes later, great but will no longer be of it’s time.

Definitely so, but I believe there may have been an earlier Prince solo version. It may be that plans for Phase 3 or a Free Urself album morphed in to Black is the New Black.

Again, someone asked him via Twitter to name a track from Phase Three and he replied "Free Urself". If someone could find a screenshot of that, we could close the argument.

I remember seeing the tweet you are talking about! I'm almost positive there was going to be a Phase 3!

I saw it also. Phase 3 and a possible Free Urself album (remember that 2015 video trailer with 'Stare' playing over the picture of Prince later used on the 'Free Urself' single cover, announcing new funk forthcoming under that title?) were probably abandoned or shelved (obviously 'Stare' was added to Phase 2) for the Black is the New Black album.

It was not unusual for Prince to work on multiple projects and configurations. As we know, he was also working on a new MPLS sound album.

Can we draw conclusions from the Esatet not having released these?

I.e.:

If they were ready, complete, nice albums, what would be in the way when deciding to release?

The images came before them being album artwork so I wouldn't take the amount of images as indication that there were more HnR chapters. There's a whole series of the same style with different Prince looks through the ages.

I know that Welcome 2 The Freedom Galaxy was a alternate title to Purple Music on the Piano & Mic tour.

Spencer Derry, 3rdeyeboy just shared some art he did for Prince April 16th. It says Freedom Galaxy and is an amazing take on the 1999 cover style. https://www.facebook.com/...mp;sfns=mo - sorry for the long link.

Remember he did art for lots of P’s shirts / guitar straps / PPAD - wasn’t the shirt for free urself his design. Very distinctive.

I remember Blule’s watercolour being on a mock up for a sleeve for an album titled free urself that he shared.

What was the MPLSound album? Is it the one he was replacing guitar with strings on and had frida kahlo on it?

I do agree - they should be releasing the most recent stuff, it is a great sadness that for a guy who lived in the now they seem to be focussing on a really narrow period of time.

I’ll skip the super deluxe 1999 - it’s too expensive, and pick up next year when it’s cheaper and just get a free trial to stream it. Release a 5 disc set of most recent stuff and I will gladly give you the £60 ur asking.

Based on the facts at hand, I would guess that Phase III and Free Urself were the same project. Black in the New Black, was seperate project, and one that was self contained with different musicians...The 'Madhouse' of the era as such.

Freedom Galaxy sounds like Prince was going to release material (notably 'Purple Music') from the 1999 era and even commisioned the artwork to make it clear.

Spencer mocked up great artwork yet again.

Recording wise, it seems to be 'Stay Cool'. Writing wise, no evidience has surfaced yet to suggest material beyond 'Stay Cool'.

I'm guessing this artwork by Spencer was solicited as Prince had requested art from him before and was wearing Spencer's designs on his clothing.

It's probably unlikely that Spencer would've originated art with this title on his own. It's something Prince was using on the Piano and a Microphone tour, but wasn't particularly well-known.

Because Spencer only just put it on his Facebook page. The left hand side is the sketch he sent. The left hand side is it finished off as he (Spencer) intended. Really cool of him to share.
